Company Logo - Shayamoya Tiger Fishing and Game Lodge The Lake Jozini Experience - 4 Star Tiger Fishing and Game Lodge
Pongola Bow Hunting Safaris



The Shayamoya Reserve is situated in north eastern Zululand, bordering the Pongola Nature Reserve and Lake Jozini (Pongolapoort Dam), famous for its Tiger fish. It is a typical southern African bushveld property of 650ha with rolling hills, streams and Acacia woodlands. We offer bow hunting of plains game from secluded hides, strategically positioned at high game density areas. Being a licensed and registered game reserve and members of the Game Ranchers Association, we are able to fulfil the needs of all levels of bow hunter, from the novice to the experienced trophy hunter. Our qualified guides will ensure a safe and memorable hunt.

 
















HIDES

We have three pit blinds strategically positioned at different watering points. Each hide is constructed from recycled materials and is designed to blend into the surroundings. Prevailing wind directions and game approach lines have been taken into account. The hides comfortably accommodate up to two persons. These factors ensure the hunter has the optimum bow hunting opportunity on the day.

We abide by KZN Wildlife Hunting Regulations.
